About Ghost Recon Island Thunder

Taking the next step in battlefield realism, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder is the latest expansion pack of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, winner of PC Gamer's and's PC Game of the Year in 2001. The game was developed at Ubi Soft's Red Storm Entertainment's development office, the studio behind the multi-award winning Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six(tm) and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon(tm) series.


The year is 2009. Set in an all-new campaign across the island of Cuba, Castro is dead, and the first free Cuban elections in decades are thrown into turmoil by a drug-funded warlord. The Ghosts, an elite team of U.S. Army Green Berets, must destroy the rebel forces and their mercenary leaders, securing the elections for a free Cuba.


Ghost Recon: Island Thunder features eight new single-player missions, five new dedicated multiplayer maps, twelve new multiplayer weapons-including the FN M240G and the MM-1 automatic grenade launcher-and two new multiplayer game types. There are also new Cuban enemy vehicles, new allied vehicles and amazingly realistic insertions by helicopter. Ghost Recon takes battlefield realism to the limit with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder carries a "M"(Mature) rating from the ESRB and will be priced at $19.99. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder was developed by Red Storm Entertainment.
